It takes far more than just raid hours to be able to raid on that consistent a basis. He likely spends upwards of 6-10hours a day.


As someone who raids no more than 10 hours a week and is absolutely swimming in flasks and food while watching his income go up constantly while paying for his own enchants and gems, I'm not sure I believe this statement. I don't even know how to make money efficiently in this game and I'd say the amount of time I have to use to prep for raid time is about 20 minutes a day (to be clear, when I say swimming, I mean with just farming and nomi I always have 20+ flasks of two different varieties and stacks and stacks of food).

p.s. Nixxe basically doesn't raid any more than I do.

It's one thing to argue character, it's another to judge character. Who is anyone to judge? Just stop Tony...


Me, I judge, it's a defining class abil...

Oh shoot, I don't judge, I'm not level 5 yet :(

On topic, our team is having no problems with rampages but things seem to fall apart between the rampages later on. Which kill order do people think is best (we're trying grgrbrg)...

I read through a couple of the posts, but I wanted to touch on the tank healing. I apologize if this has already been addressed.

What we did when we got 2 new healers was put the two stacking markers, then a few yards behind them we put another marker. These were dictated as the 'tank healer' markers. No one but the healer healing the tank on that side was allowed to stand there. That kept the moving around to a minimum from Fire, Ice, etc while keeping you in range of your tank at all times.

For healing we would split up responsibilities as follows:
-One healer focused on One tank
-One healer focused on the Other tank
-One healer focused on dispels and raid

If one of the tank healers got targeted by ice, the raid healer would pick up their tank and the kiting healer would help spot heal the raid until they were able to reposition.

We found assigning these types of roles really helped with the tank healing and took away the burden of feeling like you have to oom yourself keeping both tanks alive who are more than likely getting smashed.

Comes to forums for advice gets a very nice informative post explaining why they are having problems on said boss fight with a good solution then is like nah we are going to 3 heal it and fail over and over because apparently he didn't read what the nice Monk posted.

You call that nothing? Your ignorance utterly disgusts me. I have to sacrifice so much just to raid 3.5hours A WEEK. And you know what, raiding 4 hours a day? You damn well better be heroic. And furthermore, you should not be on a forum bragging about it. I'd be flat out embarassed to admit if I raided 4hours a day. That's utterly pathetic unless you're actually paid to play wow.


How much do you sacrifice to rant at/insult/attack people on a nearly daily basis on these forums?

Is the OP even around still? o.o This thread seems to have been thoroughly off-topic for about 5 pages.

We've always 3 healed it even though we could probably 2 heal it by now. Go with whatever works best.

The WM mechanic does stink, but you should have plenty of time to lay em down at the stack points before each rampage :D I also tend to favor SotF for this fight as I feel it gives extra oomph to my Swiftmend and WG.

Also... this thread? Hilarious.

The issue with 2 vs. 3 healing for this group isn't about the healers, but about the DPS. With the fight going over 8 minutes, it is clearly a DPS issue, and no amount of improvement in the healing will help substantially. They will be overwhelmed with Cinders and Acid Bombs on the last head as it drags on for too long.

I think your guild should look for a new Rshaman.

While this is true, you actually do have to be able to sustain a certain amount of healing during rampages. Which means it does depend on your healers if you can 2heal or 3heal. But so many other classes that aren't healers have a lot of CDs they bring to the table that you can use in order to survive.

This.

We make use of everything we can (probably more than is needed to be honest.. but if you got it, use it). HTT or AG, and VE. Even the DK tries with putting up AMZ though it only lasts for a split second... I think he felt left out. :P

When we were 3 healing we did the order you are doing now. Blue annoys me because it kept focusing me over and over and over. It was, for us, necessary though because stacks were getting too high on our monk tank and he was splatting.

Honestly though, I would consider dropping to 2 healers and just doing G/R. IMHO, the last 2 weeks we have 2 healed it's been much easier than it was to 3 heal.

edit: If you are already two healing, I would take blue out of the mix, it's a completely unnecessary annoyance.

edit: To clarify the "easier" bit. Rampages were never the issue (as they don't seem to be the issue for you either) they were always incredibly easy to heal through. We ran into problems with acid rain/cinders in between rampages. Dropping a healer made for significantly less poop to kill us.
